6 evacuated due to flooding in Gatlinburg

Posted: Updated:

GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) - Officials say six people have been evacuated from a Gatlinburg neighborhood due to flooding.

WATE-TV reports that excessive snow-melt and rainfall on Saturday caused West Prong Bird Creek to flood into an apartment complex in the north end of the city.

Officials said three evacuees went to a Red Cross shelter at a community center. The other three are with family members.

The evacuation was issued in the area of the Medlin Addition Neighborhood. The water has since subsided.
